Coney Island, New York


June 15, 1882


Large hotels were established at Manhattan Beach and Brighton Beach on Coney Island after the Civil War. By the summer of 1882, the popular summer resort had reached West Brighton Beach, a section of the shore line that was destined to become the largest amusement area in the country. Prices on this extensive menu range from 30 cents for a serving of raw oysters to $1.50 for a whole broiled chicken or a large Porterhouse steak for two.
